Psychology Minor (Science Program) - ASMIN1160

You should consider pursuing the Minor Program in Psychology if you are interested in Psychology as a part of your general education or as a compliment to your training in another profession (i.e., nursing, teaching, rehabilitation medicine, physical health and education, social work, speech-language pathology, etc.).

This is a limited enrolment program. Note there are different options depending on whether a student has completed between 4.0 and 8.5 credits, or 9.0 or more credits.

Variable Minimum Grade or Minimum Grade Average
Meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee entrance to the program. Students must prepare to achieve a higher grade/grade average than the posted minimums listed below, which will depend each year on both available program spots and the number of competitive applicants. The following courses must be completed:

For students who have completed 4.0 to 8.5 credits:

For students who have completed 9.0 credits or more:

PSY100H1 (passing grade)
• Gr. 12 Calculus (passing grade)
• Gr. 12 Biology (passing grade)

If more than 1.0 200-level PSY credits have been completed, the two with the highest grades will be used.

*In past admission cycles, the average grade cut-off for the PSY Minor program ranged from approximately 75-76%.
